Free software menus reinvented

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 204.198.76.234] on February 23, 2008 05:40 PM
I finally figured out what it is I don't like about these "new" style of menus! All of your comments helped me to finally figure it out. As a linux user (and not a developer) I *love* the fact that I can download all kinds of free apps to do the function I want. With that in mind I don't use just a minimal few apps all the time. I use a bunch. Therefore I don;'t want my apps hidden from me by a series of scroll out menus that are clunky to use -and at best only give you a partial picture of what is on your system.

I want to see ALL the apps I have in a simple snapshot fold out menu style. I don't want them organized by "favorites" etc... I like the basic KDE menu and hate the new KDE4 Menu. (I use the basic in KDE4).

Now, I would like to see a "prettier" KDE basic menu. Maybe the same fold out menu with nice mini icons (4 most used apps) along the top of the pop-up menu.

Thanks for letting me vent!
